About Greg

Your dog will vacation in my 3br condo on Chicago's far Northside and will have the entire place to himself. I am in West Rogers Park / West Ridge, located near Evanston, Skokie, Lincoln Square, and Lincolnwood. I am just a few minutes from I-94 Edens to the west, or the lakefront to the east. Your dog(s) will be free to roam the whole place, and won't be crowded or have to share space with other dogs.

While at The WoofWoof Lodge, your dog will enjoy amenities such as regular strolls around the neighborhood where native squirrels are often spotted. There is also a human concierge (me) to wait on every need. Visitors also enjoy visits to a nearby park or to the dog beach. James Park and Indian Boundary Park are both just a short walk away. Pickup/drop-off is easy and convenient. There is a parking space available next to the lobby of my dog-friendly modern condo building.

Pictures shows an adorable Chihuahua, Clarice, whom I've babysat a few times. She's really funny and likes to roll herself up in blankets on the floor. The third picture is of a loose/stray puppy whom I really rescued while on vacation in Tahiti. He was entangled in some bushes partway down a cliff! The other pictures show some previous "vacationer/guests." Long term guests who like kids might meet up with my nephews, whom you see in a couple photos (everything is of course closely supervised).

At first I was going to get my own dog, then while searching for shelters to adopt from I discovered DogVacay and decided to take care of dogs for others. Since I don't have a dog, yours dog will get plenty of human attention. You won't have to worry about whether your dog will get along with other dogs. Your dog will have the whole place to himself, with me closely supervising and giving love and attention.

I have experience with dogs of every type, size, and energy level. I send picture and text updates, so you will have peace of mind while away. I have experience in giving dogs injections, pills, and eye drops. I'm also an amateur photographer, so each guest will receive a high quality digital doggy portrait via email to remember their "vacation."

I work from home, so your doggy won't be in an empty house.

Thank you

We got photos and messages about Ozzie while we were gone. We would use Greg again.
Greg was a fabulous host for our golden doodle. He works at home which meant that our dog had human company (which he prefers to other dogs!). Greg is friendly and was very flexible for pick-up and drop-off times. We highly recommend him!!
Greg watched my dog as well as my sister's dog while we were out of town for the weekend. He was very easy to communicate with before and during the stay, and he responded very quickly to text messages. The dogs seemed to have a great time -- Greg sent pictures of them at the park and they both looked tired and happy! We would definitely use Greg again in the future!
Greg was perfect for our Skippy. We were new owners and was nervous about going away so soon, but the adorable photos Greg sent helped us feel much better. We will definitely ask Greg again for our next trip!
My 10 yr old lab had an excellent overnight with Greg; I wasn't sure that a condo situation would work out, but she was well-exercised (for an old dog this doesn't take much!) and he even took her to the park (which she loved!). She was happy and relaxed on pick-up the next day; I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Greg.
My two dogs, Lizzie and Goober were well cared for. Greg took them for walks and even to the dog beach. Greg was willing to accomodate my dogs on short notice.
Greg did a wonderful job of taking care of our little guy Jake while we were away for two weeks!

It was also very reassuring to receive updates and pictures from Greg! That is something we've never experienced in past with boarding.

Greg made dropping off and picking up Jake a breeze thanks to his parking spot located right next to his building lobby!

If you're looking for a great and safe place for your dog to vacay while you're away then be sure to contact Greg!
